Welcome to CutTime Productions –
the art of inspiring the whole community!

CutTime® refreshes classical music with soul and personality to introduce the symphony to the casual and curious in restaurants, bars, clubs, homes, offices, churches and schools. It’s two CutTime ensembles of 4-8 musicians & the Classical Revolution Detroit series clue new listeners in on the action, playing from a large catalog of lively transcriptions and funky-romantic new compositions. Both staged concerts and reading events are spirited, informative & surprising as hosted by bassist-composer Rick Robinson (Mr. CutTime), formerly of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. By connecting a wider, casual community to the symphony with personal context, key insights, amplification, interviews and games, CutTime is a shortcut into classical music!

CutTime won a major grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, part of its Knight Arts Challenge, to expand the Classical Revolution Detroit series.
